“Everything Is About Balance”: Graduate Education Faculty and the Navigation of Difficult Discourses on Race
Date of Original Version
The purpose of this multiple case study was to describe the experiences of graduate education faculty of varying racial/ethnic backgrounds, learning to navigate difficult discourses on race effectively over time. The study employed positionality as a theoretical framework. Findings indicate that faculty balance what we refer to as strategies of self in a bid to work through difficult race talk. In turn, their practice may hold strong potential for influencing a fresh and more holistic approach to engaging in classroom race talk.
